fact true would that lead you to vote against mr. hagel? >> you know i saw that information today also. that is more and more concerning. >> you can't take money from a terrorist organization and come from the united states senate and ask for a vote, can you? >> i am very troubled by it. >> i am very troubled by it, it being chuck hagel's imaginary connection to the organization, on a bright dot server, and apparently in rand paul's mind. that is who gets to vote to confirm the defense secretary, very troubled by this terrorist organization that he heard about in a chat room somewhere. don't feel so bad, rush, every country's got them, we just give them more power than most countries do. republicans filibustered chuck hagel's nomination yesterday, that has never happened before, no cabinet nominee has ever been blocked by a filibuster, we have been hit by meteors, but this was never done, now the senate is in recess, the confirmation will probably happen in a week and a half, unless of course we have to hear rand paul chair hearings on the birth certificate of the president, or so
committee, and republicans there have asked mr. hagel for really some intense background questions as to whether or not he has been paid by any company that has dealings with foreign companies in the last five years. they want to have all the records about anything that he's been paid $5,000 or more through speeches or various things over the last few years. karl kevin thoucarl levin thoug the ranking member for 26 years, says this has been unprecedented by republicans. they're really going after all this information because they simply want to delay mr. hagel. he released a letter today that said mr. hagel's nomination will move forward next week. hopefully be voted out of committee. that's what democrats feel. and they held the numbers there, 14-12, so they believe it will go forward. but, i mean, the letter speaks for itself. levin claiming that he's never seen these types of questions asked for democrats or republicans through the armed services committee over the last 26 years. >> pretty typical though for republicans of late. now to john brennan. what's been the reaction from
. enough republicans had said they would support mr. hagel's nomination. enough republicans had agreed that they should not filibuster him. but he looked ready to be confirmed by the senate. but now it is not clear when that vote might happen, even though if the -- even though the outcome of that vote is a foregone conclusion. the senate armed services committee has now put off its vote on mr. hagel. and that's because 23 senate republicans are demanding that chuck hagel provide specific financial information about private corporations where he has served on the board. not information about the money he made but information about the corporations themselves. the senators are also demanding that chuck hagel give them copies of every speech he has made in the past five years, including notes you utilized for preparation or in giving the remarks, to which former senator hagel has responded, "your request for financial information regarding certain private corporate and non-profit entities is not mine to give. as i board member i have a fiduciary duty that includes the oblths to maintain t
details from mr. hagel's past, and potentially a new round of television advertisements pressuring democrats to drop their support for him. it used to be the president got his cabinet. now e you get the entire opposition party to the last man and woman voting against it in what i don't even know is one reason. if you ask all the republicans, what do you do to filibuster this, they won't give you an answer. each will come up with his or her little number. >> because there's no reason to filibuster this nomination. the president has made his choice. he's coming off a very, very strong election. and as much as i may have an issue here or there that hagel said in the past, this is the president's choice. he's ultimately going to be responsible to the president, not the public and congress. i think mccain put it out there. this is personal. it's not political. it's that this man bucked the party in 2007 in his views on the war. i think legitimately so. and the fact of the matter is, so what? >> so in other words, he can't be barack obama's defense chief because he can't agree with the w
an al-jazeera interview which mr. hagel almost seemed to admit america was a national international bully agreed with a questioner who had the position. he asked mr. hagel than criticized for saying the jewish lobby had an outside influence. he said who has made a bad decision whose kind of disagreemen disagreements were made based on the jewish lobby. >> they may not have taken for granted that he wasn't going to be confirmed. cruz says i shouldn't bull out elements which cruz has promised to do on the web site. >> i have listened to the whole interview. it won't make senator hagel look good. >> everybody knows the economy has gone through a tough time. now middle aged couples are starting to feel the pinch and we will tell you why. that's straight ahead. >>> new orleans is getting ready for tomorrow's big game. but you know what? it's also mardi gras time. you might recognize their intricate costumes. who are the mardi gras indians? we will introduce you. >> can't wait. the capital one cashgives you 1% cash b, plus a 50% annual bonus. and everyone but her likes 50% more cash, but
governments including north korea. >> i don't know if mr. hagel received funds directly or indire sources, extreme sources. but his refusal to provide disclosure. >> senator cruz has gone over the line. he has impugned the patriotism of the nominee. >> cruz denied that insisting he was asking questions. even john mccain who opposing hagel's nomination didn't buy it. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. he has served his country, and no up with on this committee at any time should impugn his character or integrity. >> that only had another liberal piling on cruz. >> this guilt by association reminds us of senator joe mccarthy. >> they see cruz as -- [ inaudible ] cruz, whose father was fortured in castro cuba is seen as charismatic hispanic of princeton and can help the g.o.p. appeal to minorities. cruz made his presence felt in a short time by the senate stap dards. the attack proof of his short-term impact but too early to figure out what will happen in six years whether it hurts or helps. right now, liberals are blasting him. that adds to preexisting buzz of important latino senator. >
, sir. mr. levin: mr. president, i believe it's time for us now to vote on the hagel nomination. the defense department -- mr. inhofe: would the senator yield for a question? mr. levin: of course. mr. inhofe: it is my understanding now that we have equally divided our tile between now and -- our time between nowed and noon. i would ask unanimous consent on the republican side that i be given the first ten minutes and the last 15 minutes of our republican time. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. levin: mr. president, has the nomination be reported? the presiding officer: no, it has not, sir. the clerk will report. without objection. the clerk: department of defense, charles timothy hagel of nebraska to be secretary. mr. levin: mr. president, it's now time for us to vote up or down on the nomination for many reasons. the nomination has been before us now an adequate lengths of time for us to get the information which our colleagues have asked for. but also there's the looming fact of sequestration. we need to have a secretary of defense who is not only in office but who
. on their face i don't expect the senate to reject mr. brennan for cia chief, and despite mr. hagel's troubles in the confirmation hearing, i don't expect he will be blocked as a matter of substance or his performance in the hearings. but it is true that if a couple of senators decide to hold things up because they want more answers, it gives the administration a choice. it can either go to bat against the republicans and say they're being unreasonable, they're being political, they need to back down, or they could make a decision we just want to get this thing through, let's try to give them enough information to satisfy them and get it over with. jon: a mouthpiece for the administration in this situation said these are critical national security positions, and individual members -- meaning senators -- shouldn't play politics with their nominations. but isn't that what happens at every nomination, the senators trot out their list of wants, you know, information wise from the administration and use some leverage? >> yes, i mean -- well, jon, that's what advise and consent ultimately means. it
efforts to unearth embarrassing details from mr. hagel's past, and potentially a new round of television advertisements pressuring democrats to drop their support for him. michael steele, it used to be a president got his cabinet. >> yep. >> now when you want your own defense chief, you get the entire opposition party to the last man and woman voting against it in what i don't even get is one reason. i mean, if you ask all those republicans what do they do to filibuster this, they won't give you one answer. each one will come up with his own or her own little number. >> right. because there is no real reason to filibuster this nomination. i mean, the president has made his choice. he's coming off a very, very strong election, and, you know, as much as, you know, i may have an issue here or there with something that hagel said or did in the past, this is the president's choice. he's ultimately going to be accountable to the president, not to the republicans in the congress. and i think, quite honestly, mccain put it out there in the real. this is personal. it's not even political at this

if mr. hagel received funds directly or indirectly from foreign sources extreme sources but his refusal to provide disclosure is highly troubling. >> senator cruz has gone over the line. he basically is r has i am puned the patriotism. nominee. >> even fellow republican opposes hagel's nomination is bias. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. served his country and no one on this committee at any time should i am pun his character or his integrity. >> that only served to precipitation a more aggressive liberal piling on. >> guilt by association remind us of another senator senator joe mccarthy. >> hammer lock on minor voighters and hope to marginal lies him as a right wing rue. he is seen as a charismatic piss tanic graduate of princeton and harvard law. it can help the gop appeal to more niernities. cruz made his presence felt in a short time by u.s. senate standards. in a 6 year term it's hard to tell if it will hurt or help. liberals are blasting him but that's already adding more buzz to another latino senator and republican conservatives. carl cameron, fox news. >>> still ahead do
a candidate's character or political views. it's quite another to with mr. hagel and our first team, they write today, quote, the extra weak after filibustering senator hagel only a bogus group of friends of hamas never existed. do you feel that there are now serious exposures of why the right was wary of chuck hagel? he's making his way through but he's going to be a bloodied defense secretary. when the administration folks had to send him notes as he was testifying to tell him what the position is, i think it's very damning and i talked to democrats very concerned about his nomination as well but is going to vote for him because he's the president's nominee. he's been wrong on iran, i believe, when he imposed sanctions. he was only one of two senators to do that. we now have korea, north korea in developing a missile. their goal is top send nuclear weapons into the united states to hit us on our own homeland and yet he talks about unilaterally disarming ourself as a nation in term of our nuclear arms. i believe he is the wrong choice and those are just some of the reasons but i th
if mr. hagel has received funds directly or indirectly from foreign sources, from extreme sources, but his refusal to provide disclosure i think is highly troubling. and i would suggest every member of this committee and every member of this body should stand together and at least insisting on adequate disclosure. i'll make one final point. some have asked, would you make the same request of a republican nominee? i'll point out you can chuck hagel is a republican. i don't know him personally, unlike many members of this committee. isa limit was record, and i can tell you this, whether this nominee were nominated by democrats or republican president, i would be very interested to know and i think the american people would be very interested to know whether a nominee for secretary of defense has received substantial funds directly or indirectly from foreign nations, foreign lobbyists, foreign corporations or foreign individuals. and i would certain ask that of either party. in fact, i suspect had mr. hagel been nominated by a republican president, there might be considerable more ag
to get 60 votes in the senate for confirmation. mr. hagel got only 58. republicans said they wanted to spend more time to dig into his back ground and now they got it. >> i hope one democrat will look at chuck hagel's record and some of the outrageous statements they made about israel and reconsider have one democrat vote no. if he could find one democrat to vote no the flood gates would open. >> he wanted to install the confirmation until the white house reveals more information about the benghazi terror attack. president obama never called any officials in libya until the smoke had cleared and four americans were dead. now he has a chance to get even more information. another republican senator ted cruise in texas sl raising red blaggs about a possible conflict of interest with chuck hagel just because he won't release some financial discloesh ours. they were wondering why hagel didn't disclose certain speeches he made as they were coming to light. president obama thinks all of the opposition is responsible. >> it's unfortunate that this kind of politics intrudes at a time when i
's cabinet. a new vote is scheduled in 11 days. what you think about the gop's efforts and mr. hagel 'snomination? nomination?s here are the numbers -- online.also find us send us a tweet @cspanwj. here are the headlines in the morning papers. the washington times -- this is the headline in the baltimore sun -- have line in "roll call -- the headline in "roll call" -- meredith shiner joins us. how unusual is it to have the president's pick for defense secretary block at this stage? guest: it has never happen before. a senate has never filibustered the president's pick for defense secretary. the most bizarre thing, and the thing that is most frustrating to people watching this outside washington, is that a former senator hagel is a former -- is a former republican. with 58 bouts, and the reason why it was 58 was because majority leader harry reid had to switch his vote to know to bring the vote back up again after the senate comes back from recess. you have a lot of republican senators who said as recently as last week that they did not want to see the choice filibuster. even if they
. if that is, in fact, true would that lead you to vote against mr. hagel? >> you know, i saw that information today also. and that is more and more concerning with each day there are new things coming out. >> and then just a few days later senator ted cruz of texas questioned whether hagel had been financed by north korea. or saudi arabia. >> we saw with his nomination something truly extraordinary. which is the government of iran formerly and publicly praising the nomination of a defense secretary. i would suggest to you that to my knowledge, that is unprecedented to see a foreign nation like iran publicly celebrating a nomination. it may be that he spoke at radical or extreme groups or anti-israel groups and accepted financial compensation. we don't know. but it is a minimum relevant to know if that $200,000 that he deposited in his bank account came directly from saudi arabia, came directly from north korea. >> that is a joe mccarthy imitation if i've seen one. yesterday it continued with jim inhofe of oklahoma on the senate floor. >> isn't it interesting, though, that iran supports chuck
be coming in at a very, very difficult time with the sequester and all the other things going on. mr. hagel may be a very nice man but we have a lot of people whoa we be better. i don't think we're going to get anybody but hagel. he's going to be confirmed and figures to be what mr. obama wants, a guy who is not going to be independent, who is not going to have a deep knowledge of the defense community and not going to be a very effective guy over >> neil: some secretaries of defense, leeon panetta, no defense background, did a pretty good job, utilizing his congressional skills and advisory skills. turned out to be a good assessor of the state of defense in this country you. don't think hagel could groove into that job the same way? >> i don't think so, and i disagree with the premise. we look at the pentagon right now. leeon panetta for a year refused to plan for the sequester. so now if hagel gets in -- and he will -- the first thing he will get hit with is the whole chaotic element of the budget and he is not going to be able to deal with that very well. mr. obama is getting what he wan
. whether we agree or not. >> all right. well, unfortunately mr. hagel, neither knows the policy dimensions of his job nor will he give the full financial disclosure that. could do him in. right after a quick break we're going take up the chuck hagel problem. at farmers, we make you smarter about insurance. because what you don't know can hurt you. what if you didn't know that weeping willows have invasive roots? what if you didn't know that a trampoline... could affect your liability? and what if you didn't know that most cars... get broken into when the weather warms up? here, buddy. the more you know, the better you can plan for what's ahead. get smarter about your insurance. ♪ we are farmers bum - pa -dum, bum - bum - bum - bum ♪ come on, nowadays lots of people go by themselves. no they don't. hey son. have fun tonight. ♪ ♪ back against the wall ♪ ain't nothin to me ♪ ain't nothin to me [ crowd murmurs ] hey! ♪ [ howls ] ♪ barrow island has got rare kangaroos. ♪ chevron has been developing energy here for decades. we need to protect their environment. we have a strict
a poor job of drawing substance out of the moment, but after his appearance it's clear that mr. hagel is very much in the mainstream of american foreign policy." your thoughts on that? >> i think it was difficult in watching the hearings to understand why the obama administration has expended as much capital on him, frankly. i mean, i think if i was trying to imagine if hillary clinton or michelle florida had seemed as unprepared as he had been. yes, the senate was grandstanding. >> we agree, right? >> let's just say that he had eight weeks to prepare for these kinds of grandstanding attacks, fair or unfair, and he has seemed completely blindsided by them. i mean, we haven't even mentioned the fact that he had to be passed a note about the policy on iran containment. that he misstated the administration's policy. i mean, yes, he is going to be confirmed. no one was particularly excited even the people who were in his camp when it comes to defense spending. >> i mean, the main reason for this nomination was to stick a finger in john mccain's eye. they have succeeded in that. >> do you
of the nominee for your new job and your old job and your new boss. how did you think mr. hagel did? >> well, these hearings are tough, especially when everybody is targeting you. i guess i was really disappointed that a lot of that hearing focused on the past as opposed to the challenges that a secretary of defense has to confront. >> you know capitol hill. you got a record. what else do you move on? >> i understand. you also have to talk about what a secretary of defense has to face, a war on afghanistan, we've got sequester problems and budget problems. we've got serious problems in dealing with the challenges in terms of the middle east on cyber. there are a number of areas that simply were not that well covered that deal with what a secretary of defense has to do and that concerned me. >> but nothing concerned -- this man will be your new boss replacing secretary panetta. is there anything in that hearing that concerned you? there are a lot of folks who thought he just doesn't seem prepared? >> no, i had the same reaction secretary panetta had. i was actually more surprised about what w
committee will vote today on the nomination of chuck hagel for defense secretary. mr. hagel has encountered strong opposition from some members. but his nomination is expected to be approved and sent to the full senate for a vote. he's expected to be confirmed in just the coming days. >>> we only knew his first name, ethan, we knew little about his ordeal, just that it was an ordeal. he was held hostage for six days inside of this bunker in alabama. ethan and his mom are speaking out for the first time to dr. phil. >> how did you feel, when you heard that he might be crying for his mom? >> i wanted to be there. i wanted to take his place. >> did he see mr. dykes shot ask killed? >> he absolutely did. he said the army came in and shot the bad man. >> wow. the full interview will air on wednesday on dr. phil. humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. at liberty mutual insurance, we understand. that's why our auto policies come with accident forgiveness if you qualify, where your rates won't go up due to your first accident, and new c
of the 60 required. that means they cannot move ahead and tonight mr. hagel's nomination is in jeopardy. ari? >> you have republicans who want to subject the leader of the armed forces to a super majority that we haven't seen before. number one, i'll tell you, larry, this is not going to stick, this is not going to hold. this is theater in washington. the republicans will relent because i don't think they want to leave us without a leader during war time. they are free to object and vote no but let's be clear, what they're doing now is bottling this up -- >> leon panetta is going to stay on. >> he's available. >> he may have to stay on for another year the way this thing is going. >> let's be clear. i think reasonable people should be able to agree on this. this is no way to pick a team, this is not in the constitution, which only has super majorities for certain specific instances for overriding a veto or international treaty. i think they will surrender. >> the senate has a role to play. if chuck hagel would have got -- >> what's it called? >> advise and consent. >> if he had been at all c
because of their grudges. >> julian, the senate will take up mr. hagel's nomination when it reconvenes in ten days atime but i want to bring in something from richard hass. here he is with our own joe scarborough. >> we're hearing in the end most likely he's going to pass and be secretary of defense, so why hold him up over a recess when the pentagon desperately needs somebody at the helm? >> because in a funny sort of way, joe, it's exactly what mccain said. it's a way of getting their pound of flesh. >> julian, pound of flesh. is that really what this is all about? given that our troops deserve a leader because they serve with every ounce of their bodies, they give their bodies. >> well, i don't know that they will get a pound of flesh and it is a rizable reason. politics is about picking good fights. this is a fight the republicans will lose and it's a bad fight and you wonder why after what's happened to the republican party they continue to pick bad fights they're going to lose. they're going to lose, one, because there's pressing security issues. two, because there's no precedent
that lead you to vote against mr. hagel? >> you know i saw that information today also. that is more and more concerning. >> you can't take money from a terrorist organization and come from the united states senate and ask for a vote, can you? >> i am very troubled by it. >> i am very troubled by it, it being chuck hagel's imaginary connection to the organization, on a bright dot server, and apparently in rand paul's mind. that is who gets to vote to confirm the defense secretary, very troubled by this terrorist organization that he heard about in a chat room somewhere. don't feel so bad, rush, every country's got them, we just give them more power than most countries do. republicans filibustered chuck hagel's nomination yesterday, that has never happened before, no cabinet nominee has ever been blocked by a filibuster, we have been hit by meteors, but this was never done, now the senate is in recess, the confirmation will probably happen in a week and a half, unless of course we have to hear rand paul chair hearings on the birth certificate of the president, or something more compel
when mr. hagel did those things. he's a friend of mine. and that is a part of it the major part is the "washington post" editorialized he is to the left of president obama. he has been taken last week, i believe mr. gibbs, who i don't often agree with, said he was the most unprepared and unempress sive nominee that he had ever seen. certainly the most unimpressive that i've ever seen. it really is -- 99% of it is to do with the positions that senator hagel has taken, whether it be votes against sanctions against iran, whether it be his belief that the surge would be the worst thing since the vietnam war and the positions that he has taken on various issues is, frankly, been out of -- not only out of the mainstream but far to the left. >> you asked -- were asked about his qualifications which is now an issue. you said he is not qualified to be secretary of defense. you came a long way, senator mccain n 2000, you were running for president in your stomping grounds of new hampshire. here is what you said. >> secretary of defense, there's a lot of people that could do that one of th
you to vote against mr. hagel? >> you know, i saw that information today also and that is more and more concerning. with each day there are new things coming out. >> they call it information not yet confirmed. all the while acting on it as if it's real, making it real. well, a small sample of friends of hamas were in an uproar, bogus on bogus, that's what i have to say. friedman, the columnist, south dakota ben shapiro about where his friends of hamas information came from. he got this response. the story as reported is correct. whether the information i was given by the source is correct, i am not sure. so now we've come full circle. the breitbart reporter who started the brouhaha acknowledges that his story was a true report of something false. got it? friends of hamas has no basis in reality. the whole thing was an example of the right wing crazy world. finally, there's someone else to add to karl rove's list of potential senate candidates who might just hurt the gop with moderate voters. failed alaska senate candidate joe miller is back. it's miller time again. politico rep
, senator, would that lead you to vote against mr. hagel? >> you know, i saw that information today also, and that is more and more concerning with each day there are new things coming out. >> well, we got a problem, houston. friends of hamas does not exist. the group was made up by new york daily news reporter dan freedman as a joke. freedman said he was asking a republican aide on capitol hill about rumors that hagel had spoken to controversial groups. >> so i was trying to follow up on that. and i was -- i spoke to a republican aide on the phone, and i asked about that. and i threw out the example of friends of hamas. >> friedman was making a joke, but the aide apparently passed along the information, and shapiro ran with the story. and believe it or not, he is standing by it. the story as reported is correct. whether the information i was given by the source is correct, i'm not sure. what a journalistist standard. shapiro's story is still posted on breitbart.com with no correction or clarification. let's bring in eric burns tonight, democratic strategist and founder of bullfight stra
